1 Answer 1


The original text:

This puzzle was constructed by a wrong placement of hands

You can see that several letters of the text have been replaced by a letter one left on a QWERTY keyboard. So moving your right hand one position left on all fingers and then typing the intended message as you normally would results in the message given in the puzzle
